Über die Veranstaltung

Research on the piece INSECTUM by the RedSapata residency artists, Nina Pfüller and Rosine Ponti.

WHEN: Thursday, February 8th at 4:00 p.m.; After the showing there will be an artist talk.

Insectum is a research into the versatility and sophistication of insects. These creatures have inhabited the planet long before us and carry enormous knowledge in their delicate bodies. Their sensors, hair, sense of taste and smell are much more developed than ours. In Insectum we try to slip into the skin of an insect and figure out how to transform a human body into an insect-like creature.
